Greg was a patriot, had qualities many would be blessed to have. Most of all he was my friend. I loved him and will miss him dearly. Rest well.

I’ve known and worked with Greg for close to 40 years on projects large and small over the US. He worked as a gaffer and was great at what he did. He had strong political views and didn’t mind sharing them especially after a few drinks. I loved his laugh when he and Rich Stobaugh were on the set together.

Another great soul has left this world and will be missed by all that knew and loved him RIP Little Buddy. My condolences to his family and friends.

I met Greg when he was 6 years old. Our families were neighbors and Greg was in Little League and Cub Scouts with my older brother, Ron. Our mothers were Den Mothers together for the Cub Scouts. Greg, Ron and another neighborhood friend, Larry Berndt were all the same age and went through school together, graduating from NKCHS in 1969. I remember Greg coming to my house to take me for a ride on his brother, Mike's moped when I was around 12 years old. Pretty fun times in the neighborhood as at one time we had over 26 children attending nearby Golden Oaks Elementary School. Greg and I reunited in 2001 through mutual friend, Ed Seaman that I worked with in the film and video industry in the 70's-80's.

As a caring friend, Greg flew to LA to help me move home to KC six weeks after 9.11. He encouraged me to become a certified scuba diver, which I did, along with his daughter Liz, a very brave 14 year old. We were fortunate to have some amazing dive experiences the remainder of our time together, including during our 2002 Tahitian honeymoon where we swam with black-tipped sharks and moray eels. Our mutual love for dogs, flowers, plants and our water garden he designed and built kept us busy, being on the KC Water Garden Tour several years. We had some incredible years together and I will miss many things about Greg. My heart goes out to my stepdaughter, Liz as I know how very difficult this is for her. Rest well my dear life-long friend and I will see you again.

With love,

For nearly 40 years Greg and I worked together from California to Florida but mostly in Iowa. When I first met Greg it was working for the Principal Financial group with Joe Mandacina and Rich Stobaugh. That project cemented a lasting relationship with all of us. Over the years Greg was the constant in most all of my productions as a gaffer and more importantly as a reliable friend. From all night shoots to all night drinking I'll always remember Greg, his sense of humor, his political rants, and his continual advice - some taken some not. Greg was truly one of a kind and he will be missed by all who knew him. RIP my friend. Enjoy the time with your brother and family. Our deepest sympathies to all the family members.

When we were kids, Greg was the cutest and sweetest of my adopted cousins. My mother and his mother were in school together in Gladewater, Texas. My mother and his aunt were both married to Bernard Levy, my father. Godspeed Greg - I know you will be in peace with your brother and mother. Barbara
